The Japanese defense forces couldn't stop Godzilla.....I captured the beast!
Spied this over Route 128 on my way home from work. Dirty windshield and strong sun glare I had to darken the image and crop out the sun. That's the only edit to what's probably my worse quality image. I figured some would get a kick out of it so I posted the pic on facebook. A few shares later it's gone world wide! Who would of thunk it?

Why I created this......

Born and raised in Gloucester, Ma fishing gets in your blood. Surrounded by the sea, kids here have a boat almost as much as kids elsewhere have bicycles! As I grew older my fishing ambitions gave way to what's around me. Although I still "drop a line" every so often, my attention wanders to the majesty of the natural light that make this place so special. Never is each day the same. The subjects may be the same but the light from the sea & sky will morph the subject into a form of art. For that reason artists have been drawn to these shores for several hundred years, they followed the light painting and sketching these surroundings. What artists capture with paint on canvas, I attempt to capture with a click.....if I'm lucky!

I guess that's a sort of Fish'n!

A Hidden Gem On The Boardwalk !

It's surprising among all the cheesy looking store fronts and the fake hotel/casino designs in Atlantic City, stands a very moving Korean War Memorial.

Atlantic city looks a little shady to me. Doubt I'll ever go, but who knows. I'm just not a gambling person either. Nice to see the Memorial. Hopefully others notice it as well.

The seagull is quite striking. Wonder what it is?

I'm no "birder' but they look to me a cross between a gull and a tern.
The last time I was there...about 5years ago it was clean,vibrant and fun. To be honest,this time the weather was lousy and I only stepped on the boardwalk early in the morning. Inside the casinos on the other hand were up to date,spotless and the buffets were excellent! The Korean War Memorial is placed below the level of the Boardwalk,almost out of sight.I can't figure why,it's such a moving and powerful sculpture !

"Glosta Logic"

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
